Or, add your own...plenty of eating places located very close to the theater, reasonably priced & a little higher end if that's what you are looking for. Public parking was a little difficult, so might as well park in the parking structure on Maryland as the first 90 mins. are free. Total cost of just the performance was $1!!!!

Description

The Philadelphia Story (1940, M-G-M)

A witty, sparkling adaptation of Philip Barry’s Broadway hit, The Philadelphia Story was the comeback success for Katharine Hepburn who, just two years earlier, had been labeled box office poison by Screenplay Magazine.

A classic romantic comedy/farce of love and marriage, class distinction and redemption, the film earned Jimmy Stewart his only Best Actor Oscar™ along with an award for screenplay and four other nominations including best picture.

Director George Cukor received outstanding performances from Hepburn, Stewart, Cary Grant and Ruth Hussey.

The Philadelphia Story is a perfect Valentine’s Day treat for lovers.
